Loko, if you are worried about the backup in 4.6- don't use the desktop manager. When you install the updated files look in c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and find loader.exe - Run that, this is the old school loader program that will force a backup and restore.

Does this upgrade delete all the sounds and ringtones the same as previous versions?

Any major improvements/changes with this latest OS? Worth upgrading? Running .147 now without any issues (knock, knock).

LokoTripper,

Really depends on what Apps you have on your BOLD. Have you deleted all unnecessary stuff like language et all? If you've got tons of apps, that seems ok. So long as there isn't much memory leaks.

How's the OS? Stable? Any issues? Batt life for sure has improved ey? Plan on upgrading tonight. Hope everything goes well.

Kudos! Thanks for the release! D/loaded and installed. Working great. No hiccups.

Seems fine and stable. Memory leak very minimal. Am monitoring the batt life. Many in this thread have said it's much better. Will provide report in 12 hours or so... :D

I've just updated the initial post with the latest Rogers release of this same OS, save apps and software version, just the Multilanguage package.

Again, same OS, all the same, just additional languages, usually European. Both OS downloads include English.

Major problem here. I switch off my blackberry at night. When I turn it on in the morning it does not download any new mails. I tried sending one to myself from my BB and though it reached my server my BB never downloaded it. So no more emails are being downloaded.
Will try and downgrade to .147 and report.
